Spacious interior views of the planned 42,000-square-foot library at the old Causeway Lumber property showed off an area with 25-foot ceilings, circulation desk and even a self-checkout desk.
Ian Nestler of architect PGAL presented some of the newer views in an update at the ninth public workshop on the proposal.
The interior renderings, not yet complete, showed a theme replicated from Gumbo Limbo featuring symbols of bubbles and turtles.
Before the library presentation at the Nov. 8 meeting, Friends of the Library presented its $250,000 donation to the project. The money will help expand the size of the on-site bookstore.
